Wisbech Samurai Karate School director Sensei Paul Herbert visits Marshland Hall for master class
Samurai Karate School had a visit from their technical director Sensei Paul Herbert 6th Dan, who taught a super four-hour master class.
The event was held at their HQ Hombu Dojo Marshland Hall and covered sessions for all grade groups.
The first session was attended by 42 students, from beginners upwards, looking for principles of movement and co-ordination of two particular techniques.
Session two saw 40 students go up a level with a great use of technique combinations to challenge reactions timing and speed.
Session three was for senior grades 4th Kyu and above and 20 students had a detailed look at the very complex Kata Tekki Sandan.
Sensei Steve King said: “Overall we had some great additions to our training syllabus and forward development. We are very honoured to be guided by such a prominant and quality Karate-Ka.
“Following the course one student undertook a retake of his Shodan Grading having failed to pass in November 2018.
“This time 17 year-old Piotr Juwa showed exactly what he is made of with a powerful, confident and spirited performance to achieve his pass. He has shown great dedication and spirit in not giving up and working hard to achieve the required level.
“It has taken seven years of dedicated training and study to reach this excellent level and we are very proud of him. To achieve this in our 20th anniversary year is a great landmark.”
